COMMUNICATIONS FLOW CONSIDERATIONS IN VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989

The advent of numerous Intelligent Vehicle/Highway system projects and studies has brought to the forefront issues that must be decided before an integrated approach to these systems can proceed. Even within the narrow scope of vehicle navigation systems a multitude of questions have arisen as to the type of system that should be implemented and the functins it should provide. Numerous issues -- such as the need for a standard map database, the desired functionality of a vehicle navigation system, and whether and how such a system should communicate with the outside world -- will have to be considered as elements in the design decision process. This paper will deal with the third issue by discussing possible methods of transferring information to and from the vehicle navigation system, outlining some of the advantages and disadvantages of each and presenting some of the types of information that may be communicated in future vehicle navigation and traffic control systems.
